The Department of Psychiatry at Dartmouth’s Geisel School of Medicine promotes health through translational research, professional education, and care of individuals and populations of people. Research, clinical training, and patient care takes place at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center, Dartmouth-Hitchcock community practices, Hanover Psychiatry, the White River Junction VA Medical Center in White River Junction Vermont, affiliated community mental health centers, and New Hampshire Hospital in Concord New Hampshire.
As a component of Geisel School of Medicine, the Department has training programs in psychiatry and psychology, and fellowship programs in child psychiatry, geriatric psychiatry, addiction psychiatry, neuropsychiatry, behavioral medicine, and neuropsychology. In addition, the Department is a site of cutting-edge translational research. Core research activity focuses on services research for adults with severe psychiatric illnesses, use of technology to enhance care, substance use disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder, schizophrenia, depression, traumatic brain injury, Alzheimer’s Disease, psycho-oncology and multiple sclerosis.
I encourage you to look through our website to learn more about our work to serve those individuals within our region and beyond who have psychiatric disorders, to train new practitioner and investigators, and to advance the field by expanding new knowledge.
